Recognition, maybe?

I recently visited my local public library and saw the first two books of my Col Sec series, Ronin and Omega proudly displayed on the shelves in the Sci fi section. I posted the picture I took on here then shared it on other social media.

I had reason to revisit the library a week later and because I got such a huge kick out of seeing my books on actual shelves along with other books I had to have another look. This time though only Omega was there which proves that someone somewhere was reading my work, another huge kick.

As I wandered around looking for possible books to read I came across The Death List and The Satan Strain, two more books I’d written but this time under the pen name of Jack Dillon. It’s difficult to say how many people had read these books, I’d like to think a lot but who knows? The point is they are on the shelves too, which made me wonder. Pretty soon, early next year The Blackstar Gambit will be published by Imzadi Publishing and I’m sure I can get this one added to the library’s subscription list so that it can be added along with my other titles. So considering the kick I got out of seeing my self published titles displayed I wonder how I’ll feel when I see  this next one alongside them. Pretty cool Huh?

Anyway, there’s a bit to go before Blackstar Gambit is published and I will post updates of its progress when I have any, so as always, watch this space.library-image-2

Having worked in the ceramic printing industry since leaving school in the early 70's I've had a passion for the written word. I started writing in the 80's and since discovering the self publishing world have finally seen the first part of my ambition come to fruition, my name in print. Now with the help of wordpress and other promotion tools I hope to see the second part of my ambition come true, to earn a living from writing.
